I partnered up with Geek Fit Network and the Geek Wellness Series was born. Geek Fit Network is an awesome organization that aims to make exercise fun for geeks, so of course, I had to partner up with them. It was also in hopes I would learn fun ways for me to stay active.
Exercise has so many benefits I don’t want to bore you and list them all here. Exercise is good, however, not all of us like to exercise. Even if exercise is good, that doesn’t take away from the fact that for many of us exercise is boring and not something we do willingly. Even when we know that exercising can help reduce our symptoms of anxiety and depression, it can be hard to stay motivated. Motivation has been made even more difficult by COVID and everything that has come because of it.
People say to have a hobby that can help you exercise regularly. That’s a great suggestion, but all of my hobbies are indoor hobbies (video games, movies, comics, D&D, cosplay, fanfiction, fanart, etc). Then I came across Geek Fit Network and they were doing fun things to encourage people (who had the same hobbies as me) to exercise.
We had a lot of resources we talked about in the Geek Wellness Series, so here they are…
